(laughter) with more on the soaring week end temperatures we're joined with our senior reporter wyatt cenac. why do weather people always resort to these incredibly gimmicky stunts when discussing extreme weather conditions? >> jon, it's about taking complicated scientific phenomenon and making it accessible. 103 he agrees with 70% humidity, a, but everybody understands does it hotten food? (laughter) >> jon: so the gimmick, the pizza, the standing outside in the hurricane s just a way for us nonscientists to understand extreme weather? >> well, really any weather. for instance the heat wave broke today but it's still over 80 degrees fahrenheit or to put ina that in terms rubes like you might understand, egg salad sandwich warming weather.

(laughter) (laughter) 112th congress has been completely unable to muster a debt sealing agreement to avoid eye holy unnecessary default, probably because its such a complicated thing we would only be able to do it in the past 102 times. (laughter) >> we've raised the debt ceiling 17 times under reagan -- times under hw dush, four and president clinton 7 under gw bush, so parently for past congresses it is as effortless as this. but of course for this conference, congress, it's hard to grab a zip line when you can't see it. (laughter) i'm not saying they're bad at their jobs. i'm not saying that this congress is bad at its job, i'm just saying that this congress is equivalent to a skunk with its head in a jar of skippy peanut butter. of course, throughout the process the democrats were very clear about what they could not tolerate. >> democrats are not supporting any cuts in benefits for social security. >> you cannot allow medicare to be cut. >> don't slash medicaid. >> let's raise tacks on those who have had a break for the last decade. >> we have to raise revenue. >> there has to be something done with revenue to make this fair. >> jon: the republicans have been clear about what they can't tolerate. >> the republicans are not going to agree to tax hikes. >> we don't believe that raising taxes is the answer here. >> short-term washington solutions aren't always the best. >> the only way i will vote on this debt limit thing is if it is the last time we do it. >> we're out of road it kick the can down, now is the time to deal well it. >> jon: at least two things are clear, house republicans will never die short-term deal with tax increase, dem can'ts won't without tax increases. >> the senate majority leader harry reid had to go back to the drawing board and came up with his approach t would cut 2.7 trillion dollars, no tax increases, and raise the debt 150e8ing to get this country through 2012. >> house speaker john boehner says he aims to unveil the framework for a new shorter term plan this afternoon it would mean revisiting the debt ceiling next year. >> the boehner plan did include some revenue increases. >> jon: so both sides switched, everybody caved and no one agreed. democrat harry reid's new plan is now to the right of republican john boehner whose new plan says hey, this sucked so much less's do it again in nine months. my question to congress and i think a question that many americans may be sharing as of tonight is this. do you want out of this relationship so bad but don't have the balls to leave, so you've all decided to act like such giant blooep wlooep-- [bleep] you force us to break up with you, because if so, just get the [bleep] out.
